Splice Rent-to-own: is there an upgrade path for S1 3 Artist owners?

asked Apr 6 in Studio One 4 by corradoconti (200 points)
I own Studio One 3 Artist (and Notion 6) and I am interested in the Rent-to-Own Splice offer.

However, no one has addressed any possible upgrade path for owners of lesser/older Studio One products in the Rent-to-Own scheme.

I would be very interested in buying Studio One through Splice (as well as a couple of plugins) but having to pay full price without getting the benefit of my previous license makes the deal less attractive. I am sure I am not the only one in this predicament.

Is there an upgrade path or is one on the horizon?

Thank you.

I thought S1 automatically updates.  Seems to me mine did .... Or I was informed of an update. But I went from 2 to 3 to 4 as they came out.

My question is regarding "upgrades" not "updates".

As I explained in the original question, I already own Studio One 3 Artist and I have a choice to either Upgrade to Studio One 4 Artist or purchase the rent to own offer from for the full version.

However, there is no mention in the rent-to-on literature either here or, if owners of previous versions get a credit toward their purchase or not.

If I upgrade to S1 4 from my S1 3 Artist version I get a discounted price (more or less the value of the software) but if I purchase it through there is no mention of any discounts. It's be as if I never owned the software in the first place.

The upgrade price for S1 v3 to v4 Artist is around $49 when it's not on sale.

During the sales it's 30% off or more, so maybe you should just wait for a sale?
